The mayor of Tinley Park and the Merry Mixer were on hand to crown the winner of the Great Chicago LIght Fight Friday morning.



After establishing their house as a local attraction, the Kowalczyk family decided to direct that attention toward a cause. At several spots along the display, they've place donation boxes for a local organization that assists with homelessness: Together We Cope.

"It starts with just the family and friends, and then the community all gets together. Tons of people come out here," Kowalczyk said. "It's just grown to be huge."

Take a look back at all of this year's finalists.
